(FWC) – The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission needs your help to identify a woman who accessed a protected Critical Wildlife Area on Crooked Island West and poached snowy plover eggs.

According to FWC, during the morning of March 15, the woman in the above video passed signs, flags and rope to enter Tyndall CWA, causing a nesting snowy plover to flush from its nest leaving three eggs exposed.

“The woman appears to see the nest, and 60 seconds later the eggs and woman are gone from the camera’s range. Adult birds can be seen coming back to the nest and searching for their eggs to no avail,” said FWC officials.

Our investigators would like to speak to the woman. As always, thank you for your support!

CWAs are established by the FWC to protect important wildlife concentrations from human disturbance during critical periods of their life cycles, such as nesting or migration.

The snowy plover and its eggs are protected. If you can help FWC identify the individual in the video, please call the FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922).
